NAME

       pmNameInDomArchive - translate an instance identifier into an instance name

C SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       int pmNameInDomArchive(pmInDom indom, int inst, char **name);

       cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

       Provided  that  the  current Performance Metrics Application Programming Interface (PMAPI)
       context is associated with an archive log, pmNameInDomArchive will scan the union  of  all
       the instance domain metadata for the instance domain indom, locate the first instance with
       the internal instance identifier given by inst, and  return  the  full  external  instance
       identification via name.

       This routine is a specialized version of the more general PMAPI routine pmNameInDom.

       The  value  for  the instance domain indom is typically extracted from a pmDesc structure,
       following a call to pmLookupDesc(3) for a particular performance metric.

       The space for the value of name  will  have  been  allocated  in  pmNameInDomArchive  with
       malloc(3C), and it is the responsibility of the caller to free(3C) the space when it is no
       longer required.

       pmNameInDomArchive returns zero on success.

DIAGNOSTICS

       PM_ERR_NOTARCHIVE
              the current PMAPI context is not associated with an archive log

       PM_ERR_INDOM_LOG
              indom is not a defined instance domain identifier for the archive log

       PM_ERR_INST_LOG
              the  instance  identifier  inst  is  not known for the instance domain indom in the
              archive log
